UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US black metal movie / THE EGG horror film

Re: UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US black metal movie

Until the Light Takes Us review at Salon.com

Quote
This turned Oslo's tiny black metal scene -- three or four bands, a storefront and a basement record company -- into Pop Culture Public Enemy No. 1 and, of course, made millions of teenagers around the world yearn to sign up, without the slightest idea what they were signing up for. Copycat church attacks followed throughout the Northern Hemisphere, often accompanied with spray-painted pentacles and 666's and so forth, and whatever had once been distinctive about the Norwegian scene just became, in Vikernes' words, "a bunch of brain-dead heavy-metal guys."

But as Aites and Ewell's film reveals -- the two American filmmakers moved to Norway for several years to gain the trust of their subjects -- both the music and the ideology of black metal were always more interesting than that summary suggests. With its emphasis on coldness, darkness and hardness and its Nordic, often symphonic sense of space, the music of Vikernes' Burzum and such bands as Mayhem, Gorgoroth, Darkthrone and Satyricon is surprisingly varied and weird, and often doesn't sound much like rock at all.

X and TheWaters: I will likely go to the Toronto screening this Friday night or over the weekend. Others, feel free to message me (hopefully) before Friday, and perhaps the lot of us arrange something?

That about says it all, doesn't it? This movie strikes back at the ignorance fostered by hipsters and malcontent, angry basement types.

New update:

Quote
What's new this week?   A Calgary run has just been booked... and it's only two weeks away!  We start March 19th at Plaza Theater.  Get tickets here: www.theplaza.ca
If you can help us flyer, write us quick-like!  Here's that facebook page, please join and  spread the word: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=262311284238&ref=ts

New Official German Myspace page.  Yes, we heard from a bunch of you that this is what you're on there, and our amazing friend Tina made this up for us:  Please join and invite your friends!  http://www.myspace.com/blackmetalmovie-germany

We also have a new Falmouth, England page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=341068928138&ref=ts

And a Norwich England page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-Until-The-Light-Takes-Us-to-Norwich/247401404955?ref=ts

And a Leeds page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=371984609399

A new Brisbane Australia page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=337776777915

And we hear that demand prompted an additional screening in Melbourne.  Go Melbourne.  To the rest of Australia, Shock films is distributing there, and we hope they bring the film to you.  Call your local cinemas and let them know that they can book the film from Shock.

Apparently, there are a ton of you in Belfast who want to see the movie.  Hello there.  We didn't know.  Here's a page for you:  http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=345768525892&ref=ts
Join and Invite!  If YOU want to help admin the page and you know the local music, art, film or metal scene (or just have a lot of friends here who'd by into this), please write me!  There's no Dublin page yet, but anyone can make one.  You know the routine.

We've also heard that people in Bristol, Liverpool, Nottingham and Oxford want the movie to come there.  There's only the two of us, so we need partners in these towns to make pages and invite invite invite.  We can pick it up from there, but you've got to start it.  If you are in a UK town and you want the film to come there: make a local facebook group!  This is shockingly effective, it gives us the proof we need to get the cinemas to book it.  Email me here if you've made a page that we should know about.  Thank you!

Rest of the world: we have not forgotten about you.  We are working on things in many other countries.  I don't like to announce things prematurely as everything takes so long to complete, but we'll have international news shortly. 

We are also working on a DVD.  Some of you have mentioned that we took this off updates.  I try to only put on new stuff and screenings to keep these brief.  There WILL be a DVD.  Stay tuned.

I'll be going to the Salt Lake City screening that night, whenever it is. Tower Theater has midnight shows friday and saturday and usually a 930 showing before then of a movie of this type. Its a nice theater for what it is, a small indie place run by movie fans. PM if anyone wants to go along or carpool or something.

Dear Everyone: There WILL be a DVD release. You WILL be able to see it, even if you live in small towns, or in the south, or in Poland, or in Brazil. We promise. We're working on lots of things, and we'll announce each and every one of them the moment we can. We understand that it's frustrating to those of you who ...have been supporting the film for what feels like forever.

It's been a much longer process for us. We're just trying to make sure our film gets out into the world in the right way. Not with a burning church and a dude in a robe holding a bat on the cover. Not like that. It's been really hard, a ton of work, and all of our money. If you want to, you WILL be able to see it. Hang in there, not much ... See Morelonger to go. We'll be filling you in on everything the second we can. Thank you for all your support. We read your letters. We understand. We wish this was easier and faster.

Winner of the Golden Athena in the Music and Film Selection, the top documentary award, at the Athens International Film Festival, Sept. 2009 in Athens, Greece.

It's coming on tonight on national television. I don't have the channel, but it will be on the Sundance Movie Network.

i personally think making a movie about black metal is like making a rubber duck about architecture.  it doesn't work.  especially with these Norwegian goofballs from 20 years ago, most of them are either clueless from alcohol/drug dementia or so high on themselves that they couldn't clearly communicate their motivations for making the music they made a generation ago.  i've seen fenriz on camera before, he's like Beavis and Butthead after 30 years of daily weed smoking, quite disheartening.

I like these words very much. I've tried to figure out for some time now what separated the hypnotic, life-engulfing aspects of the old Norwegian bands and I think this is a stepping stone into a personal theory of mine. Albeit this has probably been said a thousand times before, and will be said a thousand times to come. Black Sabbath was ruined the first time (and for me the only time), by booze and broads, and they even admit this. Things like drugs, women, sex, friends, popularity and such in my opinion all lead towards this communal lifestyle that sedates and dulls and the creative mind. Maybe it's because the satisfaction with life replaces the drive to concentrate happiness into productivity. When that's relocated into these disposable civil meetings and indulgences, the artist is gone and specifically the Norwegian Black Metal collective cannot rely on it's infamy alone. A retard can tell the difference between the passionate and magical days of Darkthrone and their newer, routine album-a-year Darkthrone.

Maybe it was because they were younger, poorer and actually focused enough to allow the tasteful mind to work properly. Then again sometimes I wonder about that last statement because they were literally creating tastefulness in regards to Black Metal. I think though that the biggest difference is that people respected that in completely humorless way back then, opposed to the frugality applied to ideology and aesthetics that we see nowadays. A practical example of this is when a hipster says, "Who are you to say what Black Metal is or isn't?"

I see a definition of "true" Black Metal as something that engages me in the following ways:

1) Musically (Hendrik Mobus said it best with the "Impress first, then influence)
2) Ideologically (when artwork can help evolve, reinforce or even change my way of thinking to any degree I can appreciate it's role in my life and value its presence to continually surround myself with its value)
3) Aesthetically (this is the stage in which I feel the artist and the fan truly communicate with each other across physical boarders, and as gay as it sounds, something like In The Nightside Eclipse or Vikingligr Veldi can never... EVER be compared to those bands' newer Black Metal releases in terms of value and ability to be transformative in regards to the human psyche.

These guys have already proved to me that Black Metal "artists" become sterile and fruitless when they engage in all of these mind-baking activities.
"I hung there on a cross as you are hanging, and I lived, thanks to circumstances and a stamina peculiar to barbarians. But you civilised men are soft; your lives are not nailed to your spines as are ours. Your fortitude consists mainly in inflicting torment, not in enduring it. You will be dead before sundown." - REH
